Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen on Monday moved to dismiss that he was among a group of leaders who threatened Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua’s life.
Murkomen responds after he & Ruto were accused of threatening Alfred Mutua's life
Murkomen breaks silence
Murkomen issued a statement shortly after Mutua made a complaint to the police in which he named the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Deputy President William Ruto, and National Assembly Aden Duale as people who have allegedly threatened his life.
However, the Senate Majority Leader said Governor Mutua was engaging in theatrics aimed at courting attention.
Murkomen further likened Mutua’s actions to the notorious propagandist to Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels.
“Mr.Mutua is writing another episode of his cobra squad series. Having failed spectacularly as a leader he turned himself into a Joseph Goebbels of his county govt.”
“He is of no consequence to anyone to deserve any attention let alone threats. Let’s just watch the cinematic vipindiree,” Murkomen stated.
Duale and the Deputy President are yet to resond to the allegations made against them by the Machakos Governor.
In a detailed complaint, Mutua told police that the first threat against him was made on December 11th by Ruto while attending a State House dinner in honor of visiting Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley.
“William Ruto grabbed my hand very firmly, looked at me with very strong eyes and told me - I have heard how you have been fighting me and now I will hit you, I'll teach you a lesson)," Mutua said.
He added that the threat was reiterated by Duale and Murkomen.
“Aden Duale na Kipchumba Murkomen walinitishia kuwa watanifunza funzo kwa madai ya kumshambulia Naibu Rais William Ruto (Aden Duale and Kipchumba Murkomen threatened me and told me they'll teach me a lesson for fighting Deputy President William Ruto),” the Governor complained.
